On September 1, Connor O’Reilly set off from Falmouth, MA to ride his bike across the US, ending in Santa Monica, CA, to demonstrate the power and potential of living sober. Throughout his ride, Connor will be raising awareness about the crucial role that mindfulness and exercise can play in recovery as well as raise funds for WellStrong — a fitness and wellness community that has tremendous success helping those struggling with substance use disorder find new meaning and direction in their lives.
It’s a wrap!! Friends and family gathered with Connor on Cape Cod a week after his finish in CA to celebrate his cross country recovery ride. The crew road a 3-mile loop to the beach and back with Connor leading the way.
Connor has shown us all what the miracle of a sober life lived to its fullest truly looks like. His message is clear: Getting sober doesn’t have to mean the end to excitement or that we’re destined to endure the road ahead, but quite the opposite. We can do amazing things and live exciting lives beyond our wildest dreams in recovery. All it takes is a little hope, faith, and a willingness to keep pushing forward.
Thank you for all the hope and inspiration you’ve brought to all of us Connor O'Reilly. ... See MoreSee Less
